Slovakia presents its vision for Europe

The National Congress on the European Future of Slovakia has presented its vision of the country's position in the European Union after expected entry in May 2004.

The proposals include that all countries should have a least one European commissioner, that the head of the European Commission should be elected by the European Parliament, that the current rotating presidency should continue, and that there should be a European constitution.

Politicians from different political parties, the church, and the third sector discussed the suggestions as members of the congress, although the final document was prepared by the Foreign Ministry.
